Within just a few miles of one another in Baltimore City stan three remarkable planned communities. They span more than seven decades in changing urban philosophy and architectural thinking: Roland Park, Cross Keys and Coldspring.Roland Park was one of the earliest planned suburban communities in the country, a celebration of turn-of-the-century Victorian tastes and the genius of the skills of the Olmsted brothers.Cross Keys, built in the mid-1960s, was a precursor of the Rouse Co.'s larger and better-known experiment, Columbia.

Nearly 17 years after the first residents moved to Coldspring, site preparation is progressing for extensions on the hills overlooking the Jones Falls Valley between Cold Spring Lane and Greenspring Avenue.Unless last-minute hitches develop, more than a hundred individual homes and townhouses will soon start rising in that city-sponsored "new town" that was introduced with great fanfare in the 1970s but then quickly stalled.The 252 existing Coldspring homes were built of cinder block on common areas known as decks.

The developer of a five-acre, mixed-use development at the southwest corner of the intersection of West Cold Spring Lane and Interstate 83 is considering adding a fifth floor of residential units to the project. "A transit-oriented development should have a lot of density," said Judy Siegel, chair of the Linthicum-based Landex Companies, after a presentation to Baltimore's Urban Design and Architectural Review Panel on Thursday. It was the second time that early-stage plans for the development, at 2001 W. Cold Spring Lane, were shown to the panel.

Whenever planners of Baltimore's 1970s urban renaissance come together, one question invariably crops up: "Was Coldspring a good idea or not?"Coldspring was then-Mayor William Donald Schaefer's idea of building a "new town" within Baltimore City that would offer many of the amenities that the suburbs had.Located on a hillside bounded by Cold Spring Lane and Greenspring Avenue and overlooking the Jones Falls Valley, it was as convenient to downtown as...

ITS STARK, CONCRETE cluster houses are architectural landmarks. But as Coldspring quietly marks its 25th birthday at the end of the month, the modernistic hillside community overlooking the Jones Falls Valley remains a largely unfulfilled dream. When construction started in the 1970s, Coldspring was a bold taxpayer-financed attempt to keep middle-class residents from fleeing the city. The subsidies were mind-boggling. Buyers not only enjoyed heavily discounted interest rates, but each unit sold for an average of $41,000 - barely more than the per-unit infrastructure costs.

Happy birthday, Coldspring! It's been 15 years since the first residents moved in to the deckhouses of Coldspring Newtown on the hills between Greenspring Avenue and Jones Falls Expressway.I remember. I was among those celebrating the occasion at Sandy Rosenberg's new digs overlooking Cylburn Park.Sandy -- who progressed from a city bureaucrat and television producer to a state delegate -- is the longest living resident of Coldspring. Recently, he bought the adjoining apartment, cut through the concrete, doubling his living space.

High on a hill in North Baltimore sits a concrete foundation for a building that was never built, in an innovative community that was never finished: Coldspring New Town.The block-long foundation, built 12 years ago with $3.6 million in tax dollars, sits on land once envisioned for stores, schools, lakes and 3,800 of the most dramatically designed homes in the world.Coldspring, designed by internationally known architect Moshe Safdie, was to be Baltimore's middle-class magnet -- a 375-acre, self-contained neighborhood that would entice suburbanites to pour property taxes into the ailing city's coffers.

The resident of the Woodlands at Coldspring Newtown was 61. Ms. Howard was born in Dallas, Texas, but moved around a lot as a child because of her father's work running Christian summer camps for a national organization.

She attended Hope College in Holland, Mich., and Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pa., before moving to California in the 1970s.

A Baltimore development company said yesterday that it would spend more than $10 million to build 102 single-family homes in the city community of Coldspring if its plans are approved.Cylburn Hills, as the project would be known, would be one of only a few developments in the city to include newly built single-family homes.In comments to reporters following a review of the plan before the city's Design Advisory Panel, an executive of Struever Bros., Eccles and Rouse Inc. said he is "absolutely titillated" by the notion that his firm could provide a relatively low-priced town house at Cylburn Hills.

ALMOST THREE decades after the Coldspring master plan was unveiled, the modernistic hillside community remains a largely unfulfilled dream. The 375-acre North Baltimore neighborhood never grew into a new town of 3,800 units. No cliff-side housing was built at the Woodberry quarry; no town center rose west of the Jones Falls Expressway at Coldspring Lane. Belatedly, though, that latter 80-acre site is attracting development. The new Northern District police station is under construction there.
